Harlequin Chamber Choir - Concert
Cranleigh's new chamber choir, Harlequin, presents a candlelit evening of festive choral music. Harlequin will be performing a selection of new carols as well as many well-loved popular Christmas classics. There will be an opportunity for the audience to participate, robustly supported by the choir in full harmony ably accompanied by Cranleigh rector and organist Roy Woodhams - a glorious singing experience which is sure to uplift even the most carol-weary! Harlequin's exceptionally high standards coupled with an eclectic approach to styling and repertoire has attracted choral singers from as far afield as Brixton and Brighton, and an enthusiastic following. The choir is conducted by Cranleigh Choral Society's Catherine Beddison, assisted by Rachel Musgrove, who runs Elmbridge Village's choir. Proceeds will go to the Bramley Music Fund, which has recently paid for Holy Trinity's new Steinway grand piano, making this a wonderful venue for intimate concerts. A donation will also go to Harlequin's current charity, Sing for Pleasure, which, among other things, hosts choral events for adults and children from a whole variety of backgrounds and delivers a highly-respected conductor training programme. For tickets (£10 including refreshments, with £5 tickets for under 18s and students) please telephone Stuart White on 01483 892645 or email stuart.white@rpc.co.uk.
